Agnt Scott Boras told reporters Friday that New York Mets starter Matt Harvey will undergo season-ending thoracic outlet surgery.

The announcement comes days after the Mets put Harvey on the disabled list for discomfort in his shoulder. This included admitting his injury to New York manager Terry Collins.

The surgery will result in Harvey missing the rest of the 2016 season. As part of the procedure, doctors will remove a rib to help alleviate Harvey’s shoulder pain.

Harvey is now among a number of pitchers that have undergone the procedure. This list includes Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia and Chris Young. Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos had a similar blood clot issue near his collarbone.

The most recent example of this surgery came from Minnesota Twins starter Phil Hughes. He had the procedure done just two days ago by the same specialist in St. Louis who will also reportedly perform Harvey’s surgery.
